International Football Institute Research Presentation at the University of Central Lancashire

Professor Kath Woodward (Open University)
Thinking Out of the Box about ‘Being in the Zone’
The concept of ‘being in the zone’ is often invoked in sport as an intense experience when everything comes together – being ‘on a roll’ or ‘getting your eye in’ and being unconscious of the constraints of time and even of your own body. It has been theorised as personal and individual, for example within psychology. Trainers exhort individual athletes to improve performance by getting into the zone, but what can a cultural and social analysis deliver about the collective, democratic possibilities of the zone and how does the zone combine inner and outer worlds?
